Version 1.x Known Issue
- PHP 5.3.x (tested with 5.3.10) APC modules for windows has bug that will crash Drupal due to failed to require / include files.
Symptoms : WSOD with error message saying php failed to include files or cannot redeclare class.
Solution : Download the latest APC modules from download.php.net/pierre (make sure you backup the original first) or disable APC from php.ini file by removing line "extension=php_apc.dll"
- SuHosin and PHP 5.3 max_input_vars set too low, Since PHP 5.3.9 a new variable called max_input_vars will limit the number of line in $_POST, this will break regionarea plugin if user has too many blocks or regions.
Symptoms : Upon saving regionarea, layout is broken due to broken or incomplete .layout file
Solution : add max_input_vars = 2000 to php.ini and restart apache
